Oh and then don't forget a back up target disk or cloud for the data just to be safe with all those pictures.

I forgot to link the drives. It will have a 120GB SSD fit os/programs and 60gb for scratch. And 750gb for data
I w planning putting the os/programs onto the 120GB SSD as I usually run a pretty tight ship application wise. I figured that would be more than enough space for Windows photoshop and 1 or 2 games.
I was going to use the 60gb SSD for scratch, that is not enough? Again she is not a full time professional photographer when she finishes a session she usually only has around 4gb worth of images so I am not sure that much space is needed? Am I just looking at it wrong?
I only linked the 1 ram disc but it will have 32gb ram is that enough plus the 60gb scratch disc?
